4-2-3-1: Manchester United probable XI vs Swansea City – Shaw starts

Manchester United head back to Old Trafford this weekend, after a couple of games away from home in succession. The Red Devils, take on Swansea City, with a chance to move up into the top four with a victory, albeit only temporarily, based on other results.

Ahead of that match, our squad is looking decimated by injury, so we’ve tried to decipher the great mind of Jose Mourinho, and work out what starting eleven he will go for here.

David de Gea will obviously continue in goal after a solid derby day display. In terms of the back two, the gaffer has no choice but to stick with Daley Blind and Eric Bailly, who, to their credit played well last time around. Luke Shaw should come back into the fold, with Antonio Valencia making up the back four.

Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera both started in the derby, but we literally have no other alternatives due to injuries and suspensions. This could be a real issue, but they’ll just have to play through.

Anthony Martial looked like a man reborn last weekend and he will be hoping to keep that up today. Henrikh Mkhitaryan will have to improve, and Jesse Lingard will come back into the mix. Marcus Rashford will play as the lone striker.

Have a look at the likely starting line-up here:
